a whole lot of rubbish
A Whole Lot Of Rubbish.
  • Harry looked around in amazement. He counted the school children, 32 in all. They all listened carefully to the tour guide who showed them around the landfill. The teacher took lots of photos along the way.
  • Learn all about what happens to our rubbish at the Landfill Site, just as Harry did.
what is a landfill
What is a Landfill?
  • Every week trucks come to our homes and schools to collect our rubbish, but where does it go? It goes to Landfill.
  • A landfill site is a huge hole in the ground which is being filled up with rubbish.
what s in a landfill
What’s in a landfill?
  • Its like a giant rubbish bin. Large earth movers dig a pit, they cover the bottom of the pit with a thick layer of waterproof clay. The clay is then covered with soil and then layers of trash and soil and eventually the pit is full and covered over with a layer of grass.
so what s the problem
So What’s The Problem?
  • “Isn’t that a great idea?” thought Harry, “Cover over all the rubbish with lovely grass, so what’s the problem?”
  • He listened carefully as the tour guide explained. Harry soon realised that throwing all of our rubbish away was not a good idea.
smelly smelly
Smelly Smelly.
  • People don’t want to live near a landfill site.
  • They can cause a lot of bad smells in the area.
flying rubbish
Flying Rubbish.
  • Rubbish often flies away in the strong wind and people living near a landfill worry about rats and mice near their house.
dirty water
Dirty Water.
  • People also worry that rainwater that soaks through the rubbish will eventually end up in their homes.
landfills cause lots of problems
Landfills Cause Lots of Problems.
  • Harry was happy to be inside the cosy handbag. All this talk of smells and dirty water was making him feel ill again. He kept listening to the tour guide.
very little for landfill
Very Little for Landfill.
  • As Larry listened carefully, he realised that we should put very little in our landfill bin.
  • We should ask ourselves three questions. Harry Listened very carefully because he wanted to remember the 3 questions which he must answer No to. Will you be able to remember them too?
compost
Compost.
  • Can I compost it?
recycling
Recycling
  • Can it be recycled?
is it dangerous waste
Is it Dangerous Waste.
  • The tour guide explained that some people throw very dangerous things into their rubbish bins. The teacher took some photos. Harry wondered why these items were dangerous. Can you help him?
landfill
Landfill.
  • After Harry had listened to the three questions.
  • 1.Can I compost it?
  • 2 Can it be recycled?
  • 3 Is it dangerous waste?

He realised that very little waste should go into your landfill bin.

Can you think of some items?

harry returns home
Harry Returns Home.
  • So, as Harry hoped on the bus and returned to the school to find Jack’s school bag, he was glad to have his adventure. He learned that very little should end up in our landfill bin. Some items can last for hundreds of years in a landfill and this is not good for the environment.
  • Harry has one last message for everyone:

Kids:

Reduce the amount of rubbish you throw away. If we all work together we will use up less landfill space”
